FoodSaver V3240
This is the vacuum sealer for the cost conscious casual machine user. The convenience of its stand up, countertop space saving design appealed to me from the moment I saw it. I don’t really do anything fancy with the food I buy. I just buy it in bulk when there’s a good special over at Costco or Sam’s Club or the local grocery chain and need to seal up what I’m not going to use right away so it stays fresh and tasty. I’m a simple person with simple tastes and I live on a pretty strict budget. This was the machine for me at under $120 bucks.

Our Review:

I have a habit of pre-cooking most of the food I vacuum seal for later use. I’m a busy person and all I usually want to do is open the bag, defrost the food and eat on the run. Ok, it’s not the best lifestyle but it’s mine and there’s no reason I can’t do this so I eat healthy even if I’m doing it on the fly. The FoodSaver V3240 helps me achieve that objective. The simplicity of the easy latch and lock operation of the lid and the large, easy to read controls and indicators are perfect for me. I don’t have to spend days learning how to use it. It’s a plug and play kind of machine. It has onboard storage for the bag roll and it’s easy to cut and prepare custom sized bags. It’s also cheaper than buying the pre-cut bags. Save yourself some money and buy the roll of bags. I know I said I was in a hurry most of the time but I’m also on the tight budget. Time spent wins over money spent every time. There is an accessory port for the times when I use a jar or canister to store my food and that’s convenient. It also has two levels of sealing depending on what’s in the bag. I do mostly dry stuff so I even simplify things one step further.


  • Convenient vertical design saves countertop space
  • Easy to use latch and lock operation for the quick get away
  • Intuitive, simple to read control buttons for easy operation
  • Onboard bag roll storage
  • Two sealing levels – one for moist and one for dry foods
  • Two speeds again depending on the sealing level used
  • Accessory port for the use of something other than the storage bags
  • Keep food fresh up to 5 times longer and save money (my favorite thing) in the neighborhood of some $2700 per year depending on how much you eat.


This is a good machine for the kind of lifestyle I lead. I need the convenience and automatic features which it delivers in spades. It’s saved me from going hungry many times because I didn’t have time to cook before I had to run to my next engagement. It also gives me the opportunity to eat healthy and fast, a great combination.
